Soul

I miss soul music
soul soul music
sticky radio ash tray music
i miss twisted voices
turning hips
spinning dials
Miss the air conditioner
exhaling hot hair
i miss husky soul voices
in the thick soul air
i miss my music
i miss my grandfather’s shiny
leather shoe music
i miss his memories served
on a vinyl platter
flowing like a river
in his skin
i miss grandpa
i miss the soul of
his voice
i miss soul music
i miss thick legs
and thighs
i miss the organ
filled with neckbones
i miss the burning
throat of notes cast
in and out of the fire
i miss the sounds tearing
up the seat cushions
i miss soul
i miss soul music
i miss soul radio music
got no time for
neo soul
just give me soul
